There will be no issues co-teaching the AS course alongside the full A-level during the majority of the lower sixth due to the common content.

Learners struggling to access GCSE?

Learners struggling at GCSE may find AQA’s Unit Award Scheme (UAS) offers more opportunities for achievement.  
The scheme is based around learners completing short units which directly map to AQA’s Science ELC and support Science GCSEs.



See our range of practicals resources for Biology, Chemistry and Physics, created to help you meet the new A-level science practical requirements – including handbooks, apparatus set-up guides, sample endorsement trackers, and training videos – designed to give you more time to concentrate on sparking your students’ interest in all things practical.

Textbooks (print and digital)

We're collaborating closely with publishers to ensure that you have textbooks to support you and your students with the new specifications. Once the books have completed the AQA approval process, they will be badged ‘AQA approved’. See the range of textbooks on offer.
